  • cz 550 action threads

    what in the world is a m28x2sp3 thread? I want to build a 338 lapua rifle the action looks good but not familar with the thread.

    Sounds like one of them wild metric jobs to me. "m28" is the diameter, "x2" is the Metric pitch, and I would suspect that "sp3" refers to the "Class" of fit. And I also suspect that it is very close to the Mauser 1.10" x 12 tpi. If you already know that this is the proper thread and you have access to a lathe that can cut Metric threads, what is the problem?

      That's big bucks for just the action. FFL required too.

      M28x2 is 28mm major diameter with a thread pitch of 2mm. The sp3 doesn't fit any spec I have. It may be similar to the H and D tolerances for threads.

      Ops, Al beat me to it.

        If you check the URL above the chart shows
        the differences between the 28x2 and the
        28x3. I wonder if they possibly use one or the other on these barrels. Just a thought.

          It wasn't a problem so much as to finding out what set my lathe gear box too.the sp3 is what was throwing me off.It also helped finding my lathes owners manual it had a metric conversion table in it and that is a 12tpi thread.

            Use the same measurements you would use if you were fitting a Douglas barrel blank to a Large ring '98 Mauser action.
